Origins Blogfest…

Thanks DL Hammons at Cruising Altitude for this fun blogfest.  I love hearing about how people got started writing.  When my first novel released last September, I went on a blog tour and often got asked how I started writing.  Most people gave a giggle or gasped when I said I’d never dreamed I’d be walking this writing journey. As in….never.  I didn’t grow up writing little stories or poems. I wasn’t on the school newspaper or year book.   The only artistic thing I did was a little drawing and pottery, but that’s about it. So, in 2007 when[…]

Angels. . .

There’s just something about a character who has wings. Maybe it’s my envy over the fact I’ll never be able to fly. I’ve written a few characters who have wings, and I never tire of looking for pictures to spark my imagination. Check this one out I found on Google Images. ***UPDATE: Picture Removed. There’s been a lot of uproar about using pictures from Google Images on blogs, so, I’m removing them from my blog posts to be safe. Sorry. I just loved sharing all the pictures I find out on the web, but that’s just how it goes, I[…]

Insecure Writers Support Group

Alex has this cool, monthly post called The Insecure Writer’s Support Group. I love this idea–and not just for writers, either–for everyone. I mean, who couldn’t use an encouraging word, pat on the back, or hug (even cyber hugs). As an author/writer I often worry about things such as who likes my book, who doesn’t, why don’t they–but then I mentally slap myself and remember very key advice I’ve received on this journey: “You can’t please everyone. Not everyone will like you or your writing style.” It’s so true. I know I don’t like every single book I pick up[…]
